Solution

The correct options are
A Homosporous
B Heterosporus
D Hetrosporus plants produce both microspores and megaspores
In majority of the pteridophytes all the spores are of similar kinds; such plants are called homosporous. Genera like Selaginella and Salvinia which produce two kinds of spores, macro (large) and micro (small) spores, are known as heterosporous. The megaspores and microspores germinate and give rise to female and male gametophytes, respectively.
